Last Forever

Posted by Velox , in Reviews Apr 01 2014 · 212 views

BZP! Been a while; I've missed you. Been a busy month, but just had to pop in after last night's HIMYM episode. Hope everyone's doing well.
 
This entry is about How I Met Your Mother’s series finale, “Last Forever.” Yes, spoilers follow (hence spoiler tag =P).

What about you guys: thoughts? Please remember to use spoiler tags if discussing any specifics.

I'm equally as conflicted. I lost interest around season 5, and picked up again when the ninth started so I could watch the finale.

Except I think I loved it. It was a complete left turn off a cliff from what I expected, and while I do feel slightly cheated at certain things you also mentioned,it does (as you said, sort of) make sense.

Really I thought it was an excellent end, but I think it's going to suffer in people's opinions and in critical reviews because it wasn't necessarily a happy ending. I've seen my sister completely drop a book series because something happened she didn't like, regardless of whether or not it was well done or made sense. I was never that way, but I know many are and I think it's unfortunate.

I loved it.  We had some great wrap ups for a cast of characters and for me the story came to a fitting end which made sense.

 

However I think seasons six onward only hindered the final scene

Like I told Eyru when we were discussing this today: the finale makes a lot of sense in a lot of ways, but ultimately it feels weird and completely disjointed. Like Xinlo said, the point of the show was that not everything gets a happy ending, but in the end...what?

Maybe I'll warm up to it in time (though I didn't with LOST, but LOST's ending felt like far more of a cheat than this one did) but right now I'm more skeptical than anything.

I felt beyond cheated when Ted went back to square one, not to mention throughout other parts during the episode.

The part of the finale that I'm happy about though is The Barnacle... the creators may have went a bit far by having him shame those two girls at the bar, but otherwise I'm happy with how he ended up.
